12 slum communities - Rishi Aurobindo Colony, 2No. Neheru Colony, Saroj Mukherjee Colony, Sadhana Colony, Mahisbathan, Nazrulpally, Udayanpally, Duttabad, Basanti Devi Colony, Krishnapur and Shantinagar-from morning to dusk the children who are members of the group functioned by Prayasam- Ekjot-Nirmaan- are engaged in variety of community work. While one group is busy developing their community map few others are engaged in teaching their juniors- health awareness advocacy is conducted from community to community- the members are conscious of the fact that wearing shoes or washing hands properly before eating anything or trimming nails regularly will keep them safe from otherwise deadly diseases. Advocacy using puppets to comics, role play, poster slogans- all are developed round the year. In some community Duo Ranir Sanghsar (DRS) is stalled using the old but usable apparel whereas in another community Sport for All is organized. The girls’ chess team is head-to-head with boys’ zumba group. Ekjot-Nirmaan Library is functioning in every community. Be it Education Camp or disseminating information through chariot or observing special days or using mobile technology to map their community in Google Maps-they are skilled in all. Things doesn’t stop here-everyday they do different kinds of work on computer. And in the Ontrack class there is lot of interest to learn English besides other matters.
